. why isn't governor romney winning more convincinconvincin the virginia g.o.p. victory chairman joins us from d.c. all right, why isn't the governor leading much more convincingly when you've got a lousy job market. a slowing economy, $4 gas and now, what we're calling the near collapse of president obama's mideast policy. >> stuart, i love you, but that's a preposterous question. seriously, if you look back at history and look when incumbent presidents are beaten, it always is closing in the final couple of weeks and you hit a 3 point shot and you take the incumbent down. never, never, do you have an incumbent down at labor day. never at all. so, the fact that mitt romney has kept this thing neck and neck, and it's starting to pull ahead now, that's unbelievable. so, i mean, i really think questions like that bee lie that everyone, including the media, believe that president obama has had a failed presidency. stuart: okay, i'm with you on the media. i am a part of it. did you hear yesterday those reporters getting together before mitt romney answered questions, they were working out
